Today is the worldwide release of Office 2016 for Windows. This marks a milestone in delivering new value for Office 365 subscribers with a focus on collaboration, apps that work for you, a perfect pairing with Windows 10, and security features businesses will love. It also marks a new model for delivery, where subscribers can expect to get more frequent updates with new features and improvements. Along with Office 2016 for Windows, today we are also releasing Office 2016 for Mac as a one-time purchase option, along with several new and enhanced Office 365 services.

Microsoft Office 2016: Lots of upgrade questions and some answers [zdnet.com]
It turns out that not everyone has been able to upgrade to the latest release this week, in spite of Microsoft declaring the suite generally available. Instead, as many have discovered, the Office 2016 rollout is a staggered one, and one which has resulted in some OneDrive, Skype for Business and other app and service installation and compatibility issues.
While Microsoft officials did say a week ago that the company would be moving to a servicing/branch model with Office 2016 similar to the one the Windows 10 team is using, details on exactly how that would play out for Office users were scarce. But thanks to a find from the SuperSite for Windows folks -- plus a few other Microsoft pages and KB articles -- we now know more.

try using OpenOffice for specific work duties like translation services, DTP or any serious statistical or reporting work. OpenOffice is either not supported, breaks the files, or simply darn frustrating to work with. So there are more than one reasons why MS Office is a good fit for many companies.
